Freedom of Speech

Got something to say?

Freedom of Speech was once only for the rich and powerful. Royal governors, clergymen, and a powerful few in the early days of the colonies were the only folks allowed to speak their minds. Speaking out against things you didn’t like could land you in The BIG HOUSE!

Now, thanks to the Bill of Rights, Free Speech is a protected right for everyone.

Most people don’t realize that 200 years have passed since the First Amendment was ratified... and in those 200 years people have fought hard to make sure that when the boundaries of “free speech” evolve, the original intent of the Founding Fathers remains true...

Everyone has the right to responsibly speak their minds!

Freedom of Speech is the right to freely express yourself - encompassing all types of expression, including the freedom to create and distribute movies, take photographs, paint, write songs, make up dances, dress how you want and all other forms of expressive communication.

If someone can see you doing something, you are communicating!

The boundaries of FREE SPEECH continue to be STRETCHED!

YOU NEED TO KNOW THE BOUNDARIES

Go ahead and say it. The First Amendment’s got your back!
